This was our first destination during our african safari. The place is clean and well kept. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful. Its like a piece to paradise in the city. Its super close to the airport so the location is convenient. Will stay again.

With their new owners Safari Club had a total make over and came out beautifully. Everything looks fresh and new again. The rooms breath a calm atmosphere where you can have a good night rest after a day of traveling. Enjoy a good diner in their restaurant.

Once you have entered the grounds of the lodge it is easy to forget that it was only a 5 minute drive from the O.R. Tambo airport. The grounds are very well maintained, which includes a swimming pool and the trees are regularly visited by colourful birds. I found the atmosphere very relaxing and the staff very helpful. The room...

The Safari Club is a nice place to stay in Jo'burg for a couple of days, but I wouldn't recommend staying here for longer than that. It has nothing to do with the actual lodge, it's just not really near anything except the airport and a casino (though I wasn't there long enough to really explore much). The rooms were...
